Blurb/Shorttext:
This book seeks to explore two major elements of identity, faith and disability, and understand the relationship between them for disabled people who are Christians. An extensive literature review was undertaken and nine people (eight women and one man experiencing a range of physical and sensory impairments) were interviewed for the purpose of exploring the main research question: How does the adoption of Christian faith influence the lives of people who identify as ‘disabled’ in Britain in the 21st Century? As a Christian and a disabled person, this area of research was of personal relevance and interest. The themes of comfort, confusion and conflict emerged through the literature review and were consistent with interview analysis. Analysis has been organised according to the research sub-questions. These focus on identity, biblical interpretation and life with impairment. Exciting areas for further research have been suggested through this research. For example, the need to explore connection between the ‘journeys’ of being a Christian and experiencing impairment.
